Captain George Miles - E Co

Captain Miles was a distinguished graduate of the University of Notre Dame.

As a lieutenant during D-DAY, he jumped into Normandy as the 2/508 S4 (intelligence).  He was wounded during the hedgerow fighting and taken to Hill 30 until he could be evacuated to England.

After recuperating he returned to the regiment just prior to the Ardennes conflict.  He assumed command of E Company during the Battle of the Bulge through the end of the war.

After the war was over, the 508th PIR served as Honor Guard for General Eisenhower.
